Question
Tickets are on sale today 12/16/14 for Moody Blues Fan Club Members only but I can't seem to find one to join. How do I join and get the code required? Thanks

Answer
Hi Andrew,

Unfortunately, the actual "Official Moody Blues Fan Club" (the "OFC") was dissolved a number of years ago.  (You may still find links to OFC information out there, but anything that includes Ivy Stewart as your contact is woefully out of date, as (sadly) Ivy passed away in 2010.)

About the only way I know of to purchase tickets through any band-affiliated organization is through Moody Blues Today (http://www.moodybluestoday.com/).

I will freely admit, I'm not a member and never have been, so I really can't speak with any authority about who they are or what they do.  Not that there's anything wrong with the place, I just have never seen much value in it for myself.  I know to do just about anything on the site, you have to register, and I don't believe there is a fee for doing that.

They do have regular tickets for sale, as well as some VIP ticket packages.  It all just depends on how much you want to spend.

Other than that, Andrew, I don't know of any other Moody Blues Fan Club out there to which I can direct you.  Best of luck to you.  I hope you can find some decent seats to the shows, and thanks for using Allexperts.com!

Expertise

I’m pretty confident that I can answer just about any question about the band or their music you may have. I’ve been a fan since 1972 and have followed their careers (collectively and as solo artists,) closely ever since. In addition, I've amassed a vast database on all things Moody - from "completest" discographies for the band and all of their solo projects, to extensive bibliographies, videographies, posterfiles, etc. I have an extensive collection of memorabilia; both group and related solo projects. My collection includes vinyl, CDs, tapes (cassette, 8-track, and reel,) posters, shirts, sheet music and songbooks, back stage passes, magazines, books and other publications, equipment, and video. If I don’t know it, I know where to find it. All you have to do is ask!

Experience

I’ve been a fan of the band since 1972. I was a contributing editor to "Higher and Higher", the Moody Blues Magazine 1994, to the magazine’s untimely demise in 2007, writing the Videography Department.

Publications
As noted previously, much of my writing has appeared in “Higher and Higher” since 1994, but I also wrote a piece that appeared in issue #1 of Mike Pinder’s newsletter “Have You Heard”.

Education/Credentials
Though I haven’t yet finished, my educational focus is on a Journalism degree.

Awards and Honors
I've also had the good fortune to have traveled to England to catch the end of the Band's Spring 2000 concert tour; a trip I've always wanted to take. I’ve supplied research information on the band to a number of sources, including the July 5, 2004 English Quiz Show “Mastermind” which featured a contestant whose expertise was also the Moody Blues. I also participated in the UK Channel 4 presentation of the “Top Ten” program's episode on Progressive Rock, that featured the Moody Blues at #3 on their list. That program aired on March 3, 2001.
